TIP: Vice Grips

One person putting together a sectional nut and bolt kayak will wonder: how will I hold the bolt--which is on the other side of the bulkhead--while I turn the nut with my wrench. The answer is simply to clip on a vice grip to the bolt. If the bolt rotates, the vice grip will stay on (unlike an unattended wrench) and the handle will eventually hit the inside of the hull and stop turning. Voila--an instant extra set of hands!
